This is an archaeological documentary film which focuses on ancient venues for the theatre, in Central and Western Macedonia; Pella, Dion, Aeges, Miesa and Salonica are the places where the theatrical art was hosted and evolved. They prove how closely drama mirrored the political, economic and social conditions of each era.

The film records eminent archaeologists who shed light on the various aspects of each theatrical venue’s history, including architectural features, theatrical genres, the role of drama in society – religious, educational, political and democratic par excellence – as well as the involvement of drama in all aspects of the daily life of Macedonians.
